Postdoctoral position is available in the Sonenshein laboratory with an active breast cancer program. One project focuses on signaling cascades and the roles of the NF-kappaB and Blimp1 families of transcription factors, and their downstream targets and upstream activators in promoting breast cancer [Nature Cell Biol. 9:470 (2007); J. Clin. Invest. 117:4009 (2007); Mol Cell Biol. 29:3832 (2009)]. Elucidation of the mechanism of action of the novel tumor suppressor lysyl oxidase propeptide is the focus of the second project [Can. Res 69:6685 (2009); Mol. Cell Biol. 31: 2683-95 (2011); Mol. Cell Biol. 31: 3286-3297 (2011)]. Experimental approaches include animal models, molecular analysis of signaling and transcription, and cell culture. Ideal candidates must have a recent Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, molecular, cellular, cancer biology, tissue engineering, or a related discipline. Experience with breast cancer models, stem cells, the mitochondria, and/or miRNAs is preferred. Salary and benefits are commensurate with experience.
Candidates who possess a strong motivation to pursue academic research are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send a cover letter summarizing qualifications and experience, curriculum vitae, up to three reprints, and names/addresses/e-mail contacts of three references to the addresses below.
